The Pavel Haas Quartet are named after a young Czech composer who was interned by the Nazis in the the infamous "Theresienstadt" concentration camp. The Pavel Haas Quartet took part in the BBC's New Generation Artist Scheme and are now based in Prague, from where they are much in demand worldwide, and they have built a reputation for the highest level of quartet playing.

In the last concert recorded in November 2010 by the Pavel Haas Quartet at LSO St. Luke's in London, the quartet chose two works by Schubert, his Quartet Movement in C minor (D.703) and his perennial favourite, the Quartet in D minor (D.810) "Death and the Maiden" - so called because the variations movement is based on an earlier song by Schubert of that name - both works of great intensity and played with intensity by the Pavel Haas Quartet

The quartet members are: violinists Veronika Jaruskova and Eva Karova, viola player Pavel Nikl and cellist Krzystof Jarusek

The performances are presented by Katie Derham.

Schubert:Quartettsatz in C minor, D.703; String Quartet in D minor, D.810 "Death and the Maiden".
